With an impressive discography populated by small runs of cassette and vinyl releases, Sweden’s Trepaneringsritualen (aka Thomas Martin Ekelund) has quickly cultivated a cult following not normally seen within industrial music in 2013. With an uncanny ability to tap into the primitive nature of old school ritual ambient and death industrial, Trepaneringsritualen creates a strikingly authentic sound… shadowy and endlessly bleak, replete with clanking metal, slow, ceremonial percussion, and brooding textural depth, all infused with vocal incantations and murky, post-mortem atmospheres. "The Totality Of Death" is technically a 2CD set, released separately yet simultaneously between US label Malignant and Belgium’s Silken Tofu. The material is a 2 hour collection of rare and out of print recordings in addition to never before released tracks. The artwork and layout is nearly identical, and both are released in editions of 500 copies. Digipak.
